    Had a strange thing tonight.

    I have several episodes of Gardeners World recorded, but when I went to replay one tonight there was no sign of any of them, or even the programme name, on the list of recordings. Thinking I had accidentally deleted them somehow, we played it on iPlayer.

    Later I went to the schedule to check that next week’s episode was programmed and found the missing recordings listed, and they played ok!

    I tried closing to standby, no change, followed by power off/on restart, but still no sign in the recordings list.

    What is going on?

    Right, I now know what happened, but not why.

    Unexpectedly, the box had recorded a gardening programme which I had not requested last night and which was not Gardeners World (RHS Chatsworth) but lumped it in with the missing recordings, changing the name of the whole group, so I didn't spot it until this morning when I noticed that "RHS Chatsworth" was shown as having 4 recordings instead of just the one.

    I can only assume it was a CRID error by the BBC, but I have no way of knowing.

    I also have Gardeners' World (BBC2 HD) on series link on my 5000t and it recorded last nights Chatsworth too. I wasn't expecting it to but I went to choose something to watch from my recordings and it was in the process of being recorded. Guessing it was a CRID error.

    Thanks for the confirmation. Did you have GW recordings seem to disappear as well, or had you watched and deleted?

    I am glad to say that having watched and deleted the Chatsworth programme, it reverted to calling the group "Gardeners World".

    Something like this happened to me, I think it was 'Victoria' (might be mistaken but the principle is the same)
    I had a folder with Victoria in it with the series, after the last program there was a bonus, something like Inside Victoria's palace(?), this last program was recorded too and renamed the folder to 'inside Victoria's palace'

    Oh well, looks like another odd "feature" to be aware of. I do wish that these so-called smart boxes (not just the 5000T) were just a bit less smart and a bit more controllable.

    For once I was up to date with GW as I'd watched and deleted it on Friday evening so I didn't 'lose' the other programmes.
    I did have something similar happen though with The Durrells- as there was an extra programme telling you what had happened to the real life people after the last series finished called something like 'What the Durrells did next' all 6 episodes of the drama series had been put in under that title so when looking through the recordings list most times when I'm looking to watch The Durrells I tend to miss it as I'm not looking for such a long title.

    I would guess that internally the folder is probably something like the series CRID and that the title of the newest entry is used to display the folder name.

    Yes, I had the same problem as Christina with The Durrells, and Jaeger with Victoria, but after I realised what had happened with one of them I used the search function to find the others, as, luckily the additional programmes both contained the words Durrells or Victoria
